This is the car that launched a legend, and this 1955 Chevrolet Bel
Air Nomad has been given all the right investments to make it feel
like it turns back the clock. So check out everything from the
whitewalls to the correct V8 motor, and you'll see a real classic
that is really meant for cruising.
There is absolutely no better way to show off the rare and
desirable Nomad body than in a two-tone color combo. And when
you're looking for a cruiser of distinction, it's hard to do better
than 1955's Dusk Rose. Plus, the India Ivory upper portion gives
this a hint of sophistication. The trim tag tells us this is the
factory-correct color combo, and it was resprayed as part of a full
restoration in 2006. The car has only traveled about 2,400 miles
since then. So you have an attractive shine that has been
well-preserved. And the imperfections you'll find in the finish are
more about the things that come from showing and washing. And you
know this is the kind of car you show off. After all, this was the
first year for the Nomad, and everyone loves seeing the iconic
raked rear hatch and wraparound glass that made for one of the most
prolific icons of the 1950s. These were the top-of-the-line Chevys
that were exclusive to the Bel Airs, and these came with a lot of
intricate brightwork. So it's nice to have a car look so straight
and complete. It makes for a rolling icon, right down to the wide
The interior is the right mix of vintage attraction and a useful
classic. It looks stylish with the classic pattern on the seats,
matching door panels, and a smooth dash done in the distinct Dusk
Rose. It's nicely detailed, right down to the color-matched
steering column and dome lights that greet you when the doors open.
There are nice little added details, like the updated carpeting and
seatbelts that make it a better cruiser. And the retro-style AM/FM
digital tuner with cassette makes for better driving music.
The 1955 Chevrolet launched the small block era, and so it's great
to see such a classic-looking V8. This 265 cubic-inch motor is the
year-correct motor correct displacement, and it looks correct right
down to the air grabber. It's upgraded to an alternator to be a
better driver, but a generator does come with the sale for those
who want to show this as authentically as possible. It has a true
classic style, and that means a car that makes you want to feel the
road. But this one still makes it comfortable with features like
the Powerglide automatic transmission and a modern tread hiding
behind the classic whitewall design.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, service manuals,
maintenance records, and build receipts. We like how this is a
Nomad that has the look of a high-quality driver and the features
that make it easy to cruise. You even get a spare steering wheel.
It all makes for the iconic classic that you'll love taking out
every weekend. Call now!
